Study Abroad

There are numerous international exchange programmes within the SOCRATES -ERASMUS programme.

We currently have partner universities in Estonia, Germany, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Turkey. Depending on their choice of university, students can spend up to one academic year at one of these institutions. The stay will be financially supported by an EU grant.

In reverse, we are happy to receive exchange ERASMUS students from those European universities into our classes.  Such exchange students contribute culturally and academically to our student body and invariably greatly enjoy their stay in Belfast.

Information on the exchange programme is available from Dr Huettemann ( or Dr David Jess ( will be happy to assist outgoing students in planning their stay.


Further information on exchange programmes is also available from the website of the International Liaison Office at
